A Feature: August Glossybox


This months Glossybox looked different to previous ones. Yet it's the classic pink box with black and pink inside. The box is slightly different and the card which tells you everything is a little fold up booklet. No Glossy Mag, but I'm pretty certain I can get over that. 

First off I wanted to add, that last month I was missing a product. I emailed Glossybox as soon as I realised but didn't hear anything from them. Nothing to say it would be put in next months box. No acknowledgement that they were aware. Nothing. I still haven't received it. So Glossybox, sort it out. 

Kryolan Highlighter Cashmere | £12.95 (full size)
A cream highlighter in some pretty nifty, travel-friendly packaging. It's small, compact, and multi purpose. This is such a pretty shade and the texture is top notch. I'm really pleased with this and I've had a few tries with it and so far so good. Although the price is a bit steep. 

Figs & Rouge Mini Hand Cream | £6.95 for 80ml
I've only tried a Figs & Rouge Lip Balm before which is actually really nice. So I had some pretty high expectations for this and so far, I like, a lot. It smells heavenly. Mandarin and mango? What's not to like? Although the Rose Berry scent sounds incredible. Anyway, it makes my hands super soft and, oh wait, yeah it smells amazing. Packaging of this brands products is cute too. Highly recommend.

Yves Rocher Nail Polish in Rose | £3.60 (full size)
For a full size nail polish this is so cute and miniature I love it. The colour is so pretty and this is a very girly but sophisticated shade I think. I haven't tried anything from this brand before but if these nail polishes are any good, I'll definitely be picking some more up at £3.60 a pop.

Philip Kingsley Elasticizer | £38 for 250ml 
I'll be honest, I've never head of something like this before. But it says to use as a pre-shampoo treatment and is supposed to give your hair a bucket load of bounce and shine whilst not weighing your hand down - which is important for those of us gals who have limp, lifeless hair to battle with.
I'm going to give this a go and see how I get on. Don't know how I feel about using it before shampoo but I'll give it a chance. But it better be good before I even consider spending that much money on a pre-shampoo treatment. 

Lalique L'Amour | £67 for 50ml
I'm not crazy about receiving perfume samples but they are handy for travelling or to put in your handbag. This particular one goes a little something like this... 
... "This soft, sensual fragrance has delicate top notes of rosebuds laced with fresh bergamot, white floral heart notes and a musk base note. This fragrance captures the essence of love" ...
... Seriously? Okay, I'll go along with that for a second. It's a nice scent. Not down to my personal taste but it's nice. Plus, the packaging sucks. Really sucks. The bottle has a pull top lid on which doesn't stop the fragrance from leaking out when laid flat or if jiggled around in a handbag. So if you want a fragrance for travel, don't take this sample. Just don't. 

Essence Long Lasting Lipstick in 07 Natural Beauty | £2.29 (full size)
This is my kind of nude lipstick. It has everything. Beautiful shade, long lasting formula, creamy and moisturising, plus it's pigmented so the bright colours must look stunning. I've never tried anything from Essence before but I know it's a super affordable brand so I may need to find a way to get my hands on some of their other products as they're not widely available in the UK I don't think.

That's it for this months Glossybox. Most of these items I'm excited to try, except the fragrance. It's just not my kind of scent. But as always, if there's any reviews/thoughts I want to update you on then be sure to keep an eye out on my social media or even in my weekly round ups.

Have you tried a pre-shampoo treatment before? What's the deal?
